I know that, and you know that I know.

Unfortunately Miguel has opposed my patch against Mono's libgc arguing with the
upcoming sgen GC, wanting to minimize the changes to the existing Boehm GC. So
at some point one of the two needs to be made working, best if both.

Some months ago I believe you said on the list your GC should compile and bugs
should be filed against it (July?). I hereby did, so don't mark it as invalid
just because you don't care at this point.

Tell me what additional details you need and you'll get them. The only
information I see missing is that I implicitly meant mono/metadata/sgen_gc.c
but that should be obvious to you as author! The errors I saw was that
"rememberedset" was undefined in dozens of places, apparently because it did
not like MONO_TLS_FAST as part of its declaration.
And I already proposed a possible fix together with the report. If you tell me
how to fix it correctly, I can easily provide and apply a patch, which I would
call helping implement.
